I turn my PC off and go to work. I come home and turn it on, click on Google Chrome and... Can't connect. My PS3 and my moms laptop can connect and when I click on the icon for the internet connection it doesn't show any problems. I ran an anti virus scan, then crap cleaner and then a system restore and it still doesn't connect.
I tried connecting and disconnecting it from the modem and still nada. I have no idea what is wrong and hope it is a simple fix,

Ok now I just turned the modem off and back on and now the internet icon has the yellow ! sign. I run detect a problem and it tells me it is configured just fine but it still doesn't work.

Restarted PC, and the yellow ! is gone but it still won't connect. !!!!! I need my internet!

Ok I restarted in safe mode and did another restore and now my internet works. Thanks to any who read this but hopefully it is fixed

So is everything running fine now? Sometimes a modem/router and computer restart will resolve the issue. I think you are referring to a wifi connection?
